Banks Renewables whipped up coverage on STV Hamilton online after making a generous donation to local group to restore a 200 year old statue.
The Lanarkshire statue, which is looked after by the Scottish Covanenter Memorial Assocation, received £4,900 to restore the historical Auchengilloch Covenanter Memorial near Strathaven.
Erected in 1830, the statue commemorates local people who lost their lives in the battle as members of the Presbyterian Church of Scotland went against the crown’s involvement and position in the church.
Banks Renewables, which builds wind turbines, is currently waiting on the outcome of a planning application to build a 26 turbine wind farm in South Lanarkshire.
Bill Naven, president of the Scottish Covenanter Memorials Assocation, said: “We are delighted that Banks Renewables has chosen to help us save Auchegilloch Memorial, allowing future generations to learn about this important part of Scottish history.”
